Optional Equipment
Apartment Intercom System Speaker/Microphone Entrance Panel

The AM629 Series Entrance Panel is a modular series for use with the Alpha Communication® / TekTone TA292A Handset Station.

Panels are equipped with a weather-resistant mylar speaker protected by a BLACK flame polycarbonate plastic grill. Panels are also equipped with electrostatic type microphone. 

The anodized aluminum panel is available in two sizes. The 4.75" x 11.25" panel accommodates from 2 to 8 push buttons, and the 4.75" x 17.25" panel is used for applications requiring from 10 to 16 push buttons.

The speaker/microphone panel can accommodate up to 16 push buttons. In addition, the panel also contains up to 16 name holders made of BLACK flame retardant polycarbonate plastic with clear flame retardant polycarbonate plastic strips that snap easily into the panel and are individually replaceable.

The AM629 is also equipped with diodes enabling it to work with the TA292A Suite Phone and PK292 Amplifier to allow for twowire operation.

The AM629 Entrance Panel and TA292A Suite Phone provide two-way communication between the building entrance and suite, in addition to telephonic privacy and hands-free loudspeaking at the entrance. Controlled entry is permitted by push button operation of the electric door release, if desired. System requires only two conductors (1 common, plus 1 selective #22 AWG).

The AM629's unique mounting rail design makes it possible for the PK292 Amplifier to be mounted directly over the back of the speaker.
